Trained in music theory since the age of 10, Zachary Carson from Charlotte, North Carolina is a multi-instrumentalist and has been expressing his vehement range through a variety of projects. By the age of 17, he experienced what many musicians work a lifetime to achieve; generating enough success to tour with his bands and professionally record multiple EPs. His passion for his music can be heard through the meticulous arrangements of his lead guitar.
Pursuing his dreams beyond the traditional path, Zach has become an all-around phenomenal songwriter, perfecting the craft while still maintaining the uniqueness of his own sound. He is a pivotal member of multiple bands, most recently David Christ & The Apocalypse and Raw Enforcement. His solo band and largest project to date, established in 2012- in which he writes, plays, and records everything- is Snatch the Snail.
Snatch the Snail has toured the east coast and released 10 albums, with an additional album currently in the works. The latest album, Glowing Green, is receiving rave reviews: “If you’re looking for some punk rock grit with psychedelic surf riffs, Snatch the Snail’s Glowing Green easily fills in all the categories” and “Snatch the Snail will show you one helluva good time with energetic and amped performances” - My Nguyen from Divide and Conquer Music.
Not shy to new challenges, Zach has also written and produced the score for Nico, a short horror film created in 2016. During this time he has proven that not only can he make music that he loves personally, but he can also create sounds that move the audience and set the tone of a scene. When Zach is not creating intelligently emotional music, you can find him on stage performing stand up comedy, or in front of a camera acting in both collaborative and self-written sketches.
Zach’s inspiration includes Green Day, Tera Melos, The Beatles, Beach Boys, Weezer, and many others not confined to a single genre. A true master of the craft, Zach enjoys lending his talents to other musicians from various walks of life including, but not limited to, Hip Hop and R&B, Jazz, Punk, Ska, Math Rock, Pop Rock, and Surf. Zach is a powerhouse of productivity with laser focus and delivers quality music with ease.
